Salad, Slicers & Salsa
The darkest tomato we know! A dark, meaty, very rich-fleshed tomato with extreme anthocyanin expression (same antioxidant in blueberries and blackberries). So dark that some tomatoes turn solid blue-black on the skin. Deep red flesh is among the best tasting of all tomatoes. Rich, smooth and savory with earthy tones. Hangs well on the vine and stores very well, and the flavor improves with room-temperature storage. Our own Dave Kaiser tasted it at the 2015 National Heirloom Exposition and proclaimed it as the BEST tomato he had ever eaten!
Black From Tula Tomato
Savvy seed savers and heirloom connoisseurs regard this as one of the best-tasting tomatoes. This 8-12 oz slicer has smoky, complex flavor and dark chocolate colored flesh. Believed to have originated from a Ukrainian family heirloom, it is very well adapted and reliable to a wide range of conditions
Kellogg's Breakfast Tomato
This West Virginia heirloom was made famous by a humble farmer, Darrell Kellogg, who preserved the variety in Redford, Michigan. Its bright orange fruit bursts with sweetness and can grow up to 2 lbs. A favorite amongst many seasoned gardeners. Delicious sliced, juiced, canned, or cut fresh for salads. I had a customer stop me in the grocery store to tell me this was the best tomato she had ever grown.
n old reliable heirloom that excells in most environments and really thrives on the mid summer heat and humidity or greenhouse growing. The plants are vigorous fast growers and get loaded with an abundance of fruit that will laugh hysterically as they topple and destroy the flimsy box store tomato cages, you've been forewarned...Timberrrrrrr.
The fruit is pretty much blemish free and quite uniform ranging 2-3" in diameter with heavy yields Of sweet and solid delicious meaty tomatoes. Hence the name certainly fits. These things are a tomato factory that just keep cranking out excellent tasting fruit.
Rainbow Jazz Heart
Rainbow Jazz Heart is a beefsteak/heart. It is a yellow bicolor, with pink marbling and yellow stripes. Rainbow Jazz Heart flavor is sweet and bright. The fruits are also durable, compared to most gourmet beefsteak fruits, and they have above average shelf life. Rainbow Jazz Heart is a vining, indeterminate variety, that produces heavily (75 days after transplant).
Rainbow Jazz Heart has a relatively long ripening window. It can be eaten when the surface is yellow with green stripes. At this stage it has a tangy-citrusy flavor, similar to Green Zebra. As fruits continue to ripen they become yellow with pink interior marbling, and they develop sweet, fruity tropical flavors.
Rainbow Jazz Heart is an OP (true-breeding) variety. It is our best OP beefsteak variety for growers, because of it's combination of flavor, heavy production, general vigor, and good shelf life. It also produces fruits with a very high percentage of "perfect" blossom ends -- in other words, it has a very small percentage of miss-shapen fruits.
The Valencia Tomato is a medium sized slicer weighing in between 8-10 ounces. This heirloom has a very low acid content, and one of the sweetest slicing tomatoes. The tomato received its name because of the vibrant yellow orange hue the flesh gives off which makes it look like a Valencia Orange. Extremely productive and resistant to many early season diseases
